Award-winning Norden Farm begins work on living sculptures

Work to build three dancing sculptures at the entrance of Norden Farm Centre for the Arts is now underway.

Artist Trevor Leat is creating a 'family circle' living sculpture, which will be wrapped in willow to grow and change with the seasons.

The venue in Altwood Road has also been recognised as an 'Arts Award Good Practice Centre 2013-2014.'

Norden Farm is one of only 18 arts awards centres to receive the accolade across the UK.

It is a national qualification accredited by Trinity College London to support young people to develop as artists and arts leaders.

The good practice award is in recognition of Norden Farm's success since starting the programme in September 2012, helping 35 young people work towards the accreditation.

Education officer Oliver Laurenson-Gore said: "We have really seen the benefits of delivering the arts award programme for children and young people here and really hope that we can reach more young people in the area."
